DISCUSS: Rainbow’s Lauris Bretag discusses local issues with Member for Lowan Emma Kealy over a cup of tea.

MEMBER for Lowan, Emma Kealy, visited the region on Tuesday October 18 to chat with locals.

It would seem locals around the district are a fairly contented lot, with few people turning up to ask questions or discuss issues with the State Member for Parliament.

“It was really great to see that every community I visited were working on or had recently completed a project to improve the local area,” Member for Lowan Emma Kealy said.

“There is a lot of optimism on the back of recent rainfall with many positive views and outlooks expressed for the region,” Ms Kealy said.

“Key issues raised by local people were concern regarding our crumbling roads, support for our CFA volunteers and the devastating ?nancial damage to local small businesses caused by the State Governments parade holiday,” she said.

“It seems like most people in the area are generally happy as I never seem to have a huge amount of people come to talk to me. But if anyone has missed me today, they can call my of?ce at any time and discuss anything. Remember, if I don’t know there’s a problem I can’t ?x it. I’m here to help you,” Ms Kealy said.
